Emergency Contact Information
and Tips - Be Prepared!

From time to time there are periods of political and social unrest in various countries throughout the world. It is at times like this that we ask ourselves the question, "In the event of a natural disaster or of a civil emergency, am I as prepared as I can be?"

The College of the North Atlantic-Qatar (CNA-Q) is encouraging all of its present and new employees, to become familiar with the information and recommendations found in the links below.

It is the responsibility of the employee to ensure they are prepared, by completing the steps as recommended. The employees should follow the same steps for each family member living in or moving to Qatar.
